Job mar­ket is tough for all not just grad­u­ates

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

Dear Anony­mous, ‘There’s no jobs out there for re­cent grad­u­ates’ (Let­ters Oct 30), the harsh re­al­ity is that you have en­tered the job mar­ket at a time when a lot of ex­pe­ri­enced can­di­dates are in the mar­ket and a num­ber are pre­pared to take mas­sive pay­cuts in or­der just to stay in the re­gion in the hope that they will se­cure a higher pay­ing role. I have per­son­ally wit­nessed peo­ple who were on close to 30k ac­cept jobs for close to 10k just to stay in the re­gion. The other ob­sta­cle you will face is most com­pa­nies here don’t want to hire grad­u­ates as they see them as an un­nec­es­sary ex­pense and also clients of­ten want peo­ple with ex­pe­ri­ence to work on their projects.
